AYER, Mass .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Ajinomoto Cambrooke, Inc., a US-based therapeutic nutrition company and a global supplier of medical nutrition products, today introduced two hypoallergenic amino acid formulas that are essentially better for children: EquaCare Jr. ™ and Essential Care Jr.™
Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins.

“Although amino acid formulas are a medical necessity for many children, they are often not covered by insurance and create financial hardship for parents. EquaCare Jr. helps ease that burden, providing the essential nutrients a growing child needs, but at significant savings over similar amino acid-based formulas, ”said Howard Lossing, CEO of Ajinomoto Cambrooke.
Essential Care Jr.
Essential Care Jr. contains natural ingredients and is unique among the main formulas based on amino acids being the only one with absolutely no corn syrup solids. Other formulas, such as EleCare® Jr. * and Neocate® Junior *, list corn syrup solids as the main ingredient.

Essential Care Jr. is the only amino acid formula to use low fermentable fiber sources.
Essential Care Jr. uses Ajipure® pharmaceutical grade vegan amino acids and a proprietary blend of essential amino acids with increased leucine which can help build muscle.

It’s also the only amino acid-based formula containing vitamin K2, an emerging nutrient that helps support bone health, and the only one to contain both lutein and DHA, which may provide benefits. protective benefits for a child’s eyes and promote brain development. Essential Care Jr. has a price comparable to that of other formulas based on amino acids.

This is a product that we expect will reset the entire market, because for the same price parents can give their children a better, more natural, and more nutritious formula.
